We honestly get excited with each new wave of the sneaker trend—it only solidifies them as the shoes we can't live without. With each new season comes a new round of styles and shapes that we get excited about. Our feet have seriously thanked us for swapping out our heels way more often. Because that's what good design should do after all: function.
With an influx of luxe textures at the forefront this season, sneakers are finding their way into yet another category previously unheard of. The sneakers of the season look just like dress shoes. (Yes, you read that right.) In satin, velvet, and metallic finishes, these rubber-soled styles are anything but athletic. They're basically begging to be dressed up with cool trousers. We're calling it: You'll be wearing them to the office and beyond in the span of a few months. (Here's how to keep them sparkly clean. You can thank us later.)
In the spirit of continuing to discover how far the sneaker trend can go, we're bringing you these 19 sneakers that look just like dress shoes. Keep reading to shop our picks.
